hi!

the problem that i got is not actually about phpdig i guess, but perhaps phpdig can help solve it.
i got quite a big site of about 1500 urls. unfortunately there are some dead links in it. first i manually deleted them after using the phpdig-spider, but after the next time of indexing, they were there again.
now that's getting on my nerves and i just can't find out where these dead links come from.
so now i thought phpdig at least has to "know" on which pages are some dead links. does anyone have an idea how to use phpdig to find out where they are?

Hi. I'm not sure if this is what you are looking to do, but you could echo the URL of the page. In robot_functions.php find the following code and try adding the line indicated below.

if (ereg("HTTP/[0-9.]+ (([0-9])[0-9]{2})", $answer,$regs)) {
if ($regs[2] == 2 || $regs[2] == 3) {
$code = $regs[2];
}
elseif ($regs[1] >= 401 && $regs[1] <= 403) {
$status = "UNAUTH";
break;
}
else {
$status = "NOFILE";
echo "<br>No File: " . $url . "<br>"; // add this line
break;
}
}

hey charter!

thanks for the code but that doesn't help me. i know the urls that are broken, because i see them in phpdig's admin menu.
anyway, thank you.
